The Green Lantern And Star Girl

The Green Lantern And Star Girl

Cincinnati Comic Expo held in the Duke Energy Center in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio. I know about the Green Lantern, but I had never heard of Stargirl, but then again, why would such an old fart expect to?

From Wikipedia:

"Green Lantern is the name of a number of superheroes appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. They fight evil with the aid of rings that grant them a variety of extraordinary powers.

The first Green Lantern character, Alan Scott, was created in 1940 during the initial popularity of superheroes. Alan Scott usually fought common criminals in New York City with the aid of his magic ring. The publication of this character ceased in 1949 during a general decline in the popularity of superhero comics, but the character saw a limited revival in later decades.

In 1959, to capitalize on the booming popularity of science fiction, the Green Lantern character was reinvented as Hal Jordan, an officer for an interstellar law enforcement agency known as the Green Lantern Corps. Additional members of this agency, all of whom call themselves Green Lanterns, were introduced over time. Prominent Green Lanterns who also have had starring roles in the books include Guy Gardner, John Stewart, Kyle Rayner, Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz.

The Green Lanterns are among DC Comics’ more successful properties. They have been adapted to television, video games, and motion pictures."

Courtney Elizabeth Whitmore is a fictional superheroine known as Stargirl (often called "Stars" or "Star") in the DC Comics Universe. Originally known as the second Star-Spangled Kid, she began using the name "Stargirl" after she was presented with the Cosmic Staff by Jack Knight. The character is a creation of Geoff Johns, who based her personality on that of his sister, also named Courtney, who died in the explosion of TWA Flight 800 in 1996. Johns is a fan of Captain Carrot and the Zoo Crew, and Courtney’s original outfit is similar to Zoo Crew member Yankee Poodle’s; in the comics, this is explained by Courtney being a fan of Yankee Poodle."
